Stylish Blogger award and nominations

Thank you Paul at "The Man Cave" for this one.
The Stylish Blogger Award given from one blogger to another one might say, like a pat on the back for a good job. I was nominated a couple of days ago and have been thinking a little on who to nominate myself as there 4 rules:

There four rules attached to the award are:
1. Thank and link back to the person giving you the award- thanks again Paul!
2. Share seven things about yourself
3. Select 10-15 blogs who you think deserve this award
4. Contact these bloggers and let them know about the award

Seven things about myself

- I don't use Spotify.

- I don't own anything made by Apple, and have a slight loathing for touch screen products and smartphones.

- Went to a TV production school for 1.5 year where I learned how to write screen/teleplays and had an internship in Stockholm in a TV production studio for half a year. That career move didn't pan out as Sweden is way too small for screenwriters to make a decent living.  I'm currently studying Criminology instead, 2nd year nearing its end and just one more year to go (hopefully with some government job at the end of the tunnel).

- Used to play WHFB and WH40k, I had multiple painted up 3-5000pts armies for both games.

- Huge history nerd, especially military history. If one Neanderthal hit another Neanderthal with a stick – I want to read about it!

- Last year in high school we had to write a paper on a free subject which was then presented to the other students and the teacher in small groups. As the others had presented their papers on soccer, cars and other silly things – I presented my paper on “Vampires” and talked about Vlad the Impaler, bloated bodies, people buried alive and Vampire mythology in different cultures for 30 minutes LOL!

- As a kid I owned a few hamsters and a desert rat. The desert rat was hands down the best pet. Clever little animal. Much later I earned that they should be kept in pairs so that they wouldn’t feel lonely. But as a kid I played with that little rodent every day and it became very tame so I don’t think it suffered from being alone.  It could sit on my shoulder like a parrot and came when called on.

Now 10-15 blogs is a LOT. I decided to scale it down to 3 since I only follow something like 30 blogs myself. I've seen other people who have received this award do the same.

First one would go to the guys over at "What would Patton do" for their work on spreading Flames of War in a interesting way. Their blog contains the most enjoyable WWPD podcast, very nice battle reports as well as tutorials and other FoW related projects. As a FoW newbie I find their site to be a great resource as I learn stuff about the game and can ask questions about the rules and units.

Second one, not miniature wargame related, but a very fun blog none the less "Confessions of a Geek Princess". Her blog contains a lot of pop-cultare geekyness and great sense of humor with links, pictures and videos on all sorts of crazy stuff that will make you laugh out loud.

Third, "Onira's War paints", this guy has a very unique painting style. The miniatures look like oil paintings, I just love the look of those projects he keeps posting on the Steve Dean Forum. And he has a blog where he gathers all his painted stuff you should really check it out!
